Since my return home, I have been greatly amused by the discovery of my old school books. I particularly enjoyed reading through some of my school "diary" entries, and my English books, which hold some of my earliest stories, one of which I will share with you shortly. I was appalled by my ramblings and atrocious spelling, but actually, some of the storylines were quite impressive! Below is one of my diary entries, written when I was 8 years old.
It was about the discovery of a bull in one of the back fields, but as the caption reads: "Luckerly there was fence".
And now, for a story, written in its original form, complete with poor spelling and grammar. Enjoy!
The cat was always saying to herself "Im the most beautiful creature in the world."
Then one day a hansom peacock came.
He was prettier than the cat.
"Drat" said the cat. "Im supposed to be the prettyiest. Not a peacock."
The cat found out the peacock was called Percy.
The cat thought of an awfull plan which was to eat it.
The cat saw Percy and she ran up to him and pounced.
Then the cat remerbered the animal rule.
If you attack an animal you get bad punishment.
The cat went back to her house and ate tinned cat food.
She saw Percy leaving.
Her owner told her Percy only came for a holiday.
The cat smiled.
The cats owner was a princess who lived in a palace.
Then one night there was an animal meeting.
The animals were exited.
The wise old deer said "my daughter will now become queen of the deer and that cat will now become queen of the cats."
So the cat became queen of the cats.
The cat was so sorry Percy left. She asked him to come and stay.
The cat and Percy were best friends now.
They lived happily ever after.
I hope this amused you as much as it amused me! And hopefully my writing has come on a bit since then...
